Our Program: "Who Nose?"
Susanna Philippousis
How important is breathing - and how you do it - to your overall health? Susanna Philippousis gave us an in depth presentation that detailed just how important breathing is. Rotarians were surprised to hear the many issues that arise when individuals breath through their mouths and not their noses. 
She noted: "Few scientists set out to study breathing, but somehow in some way breathing kept finding them. They discovered that our capacity to breathe has changed through the long process of human evolution, and that the way we breathe has gotten way worse since the dawn of the industrial age. They discovered 90% of us are very likely breathing incorrectly, and that this failure is either causing or aggravating a laundry list of chronic diseases.  On a more inspiring note, some of these researchers were also showing that many modern issues like asthma, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, psoriasis, and more could either be reduced or reversed, simply by changing the way we inhale and exhale. The missing pillar of Health is breath." 
Please read Susanna's presentation here to find out why the way you breathe is so important to your health:
Thank you Susanna for a very interesting presentation!
